" Boldly" block 2

Hello All
Here is some of what I have been working on. This is number 2 of 16 ( I think). This is just a start, it still needs a lot of work. I need to add more to some of the seams and of course the beads. I think I will wait until I have a few more started so I get more of an idea of how much embellishment is needed.
In the bottom right corner is a stitch fast becoming one of my favorites. It is the hot pink and yellow one. I call it a buffalo head stitch. Actually it is just a fly stitch with a detached chain instead of a straight one to finish it.
The red wavy line is done in a barb chain stitch.
The yellow in the top left is from the Carole Sample's templates.These are really useful to keep your work even. They also give you a lot of ideas for new treatments.
Well back to work

Boldy is going brilliantly! I can totally picture what a buffalo head stitch looks like.
